Haiku Graveyard

under cloudy skies
graves adorned with tears and joy
memories of love

How moving it was to come upon this beautifully decorated cemetery while in New Mexico last month.

  10. …as if in heaven…. love the trees swaying in the background…. are those willows by a small river… new mexico has always been a special place… it has been far too long since last visiting..

  11. Seeing this picture reminded me of another cemetery I believe I saw at your site. It is the cemetery in Tonapah, NV. I’ve been wanting to visit that spot since I saw your picture and I wanted to let you know that we are going there in June. We plan to go to Virginia City, Bodie, and Tonapah. I’m excited. So much history to visit.

    And, as always on this somber day, I never, ever forget.
